UCL Energy Institute
Steve is currently working on the Transforming Building Energy & Power Demand Theme for CREDS on the project that will be modelling the UK built environment demand and its interaction with the energy system using empirical data. This work involves detailed spatio-temporal models of the UK Building Stock and Big Data. One example of the way these types of models can be applied is the London Building Stock Model that is currently being built for the Greater London Authority (GLA).
Steve worked on the RCUK Centre for Energy Epidemiology (CEE) creating a 3D model of the building stock (3DStock). The model integrates energy use in the building stock of England and Wales by using Valuation Office Agency (VOA) data, spatial data, address matching and other data sources to construct three-dimensional models of buildings, premises, activities and energy use.
He has many years of experience of using GIS and the geographic component of problems as a bridge or link between different disciplines. Prior to working at the UCL Energy Institute he ran a consultancy company for 6 years working on GIS and GeoVisualisation solutions for clients like the UK Green Building Council, English Heritage, Wates, The Building Exploratory and the Antarctic Heritage Trust.
Before this he worked for the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis where he was involved in projects visualising air pollution, feeding 3D weather prediction models, Land Use and Transportation models (PROPOLIS), 3D urban models (GLA) and city modelling (Tyndall Centre).
